Yr 2 Teacher in charge of Room 6
Diploma of Teaching
I have been teaching at Reignier since 1995.I first started teaching in a Catholic School in Papakura and really enjoyed the huge difference from teaching in a state school. So when my husband and I moved back to Napier, I felt very fortunate being able to secure a position here. I am the Teacher with Library responsibilities, I enjoy coaching the children in gymnastics and soccer. I am really into competative lawn bowls, which takes up a lot of my weekends or I can often be found with my nose buried in a book!
